Three submitted. One quite strong, martini-style, guaranteed panty-remover.

One more of a punch, very refreshing, with a milder kick probably better suited to more people (i.e. not hard-core booze hounds).

One long shot, summer drink, great to enjoy on the patio but not so much as fall/winter sets it.

Here's hoping!

Just submitted mine! It's an idea I've had banging around in my head for a while, and this was just the kick in the pants I needed to make it real. It was quite an effort to get this recipe where I wanted it, I'm freshly impressed by those of you who were able to conjure up multiple recipes. This mixology stuff is exactly as tricky as it looks.

I'm really looking forward to hearing more about others' submissions once the contest is over and we can speak freely.

Just submitted my three recipes. The good news is that even if none of them win, I had a great time creating them, and will continue to enjoy drinking them!

BTD -- hum I wonder if "exercising your tastebuds" counts as "exercise"....

And yes, can't wait to see what the next coctails will be...with Ran amongst others...should be pretty tasty!

Well,

After much exhaustive research, I'm prepared to tell you the winner.

First off, thanks so much to all of you who took the time and effort to send in recipes!

Over 45 drink recipes were submitted. So many looked good and had potential, that I couldn't narrow it down to just 10, so I ended up presenting 16 for competition. Lots of original ideas, great ingredients, and great flavor combinations.

Most stuck with some tried and true tiki flavor profiles, with a few notable exceptions showing influence of classic cocktails and contemporary mixology.

Our staff took great pains to carefully analyze each drink closely, often revisiting drinks over and over as they developed. We even remade a few that got too watery in the course of our deliberations. (*hic*)

So I'm pleased to announce that the winner is....
